Asymmetric Sharing - Ross Mayfield's Weblog
Google Plus has a different privacy/sharing model than other social networks. Different from Facebook's confirmed tie model that they have been gradually breaking with ever more granular complexity. Different from Twitter & SlideShare's model of Asymmetric Follow, where people can follow/subscribe to posts that are public. Google+ is Asymmetric Sharing, where you selectively choose to share, but to make it into the main stream of view, someone nees to choose to share back. I give it high marks on privacy, but it inherently comes at a cost for complexity, virality, discovery and retaining social context.

The Parable of the Paperclip Maximizer – Yonatan Zunger
A slight twist on an old tale: the Parable of the Paperclip Maximizer, and what it teaches us about our world today.

As a footnote: The parable was originally meant to be a warning about the dangers of AI. But like many parables about the dangers of technology, from Shelley's Frankenstein to von Neumann et al's "Grey Goo," it's also a parable about us. Almost every "wait, what if this gets out of control?!" question you can ask about technology has already happened at least once – and we are its outcome.

I enjoyed this parable for work towards negligible senescence, written by Nick Bostrom, read by CGP Grey. I would love to see a similar video for the parable of the paperclip maximizer https://hackernoon.com/the-parable-of-the-paperclip-maximizer-3ed4cccc669a

The Death Of Social Media Networks
Nothing lasts forever. The announcement of the sunsetting of Google Plus, made on December 10, 2018 is remarkable for several distinct reasons. Listing them straight away is important because it helps us understand why it also marks the beginning of the end for all social media networks.

The Fall of Google+
I joined Google+ within a month or so of its launch in June 2011. I’d already been on Twitter for four years and Facebook for three and was excited about how this new service combined the long-form writing of blogs with new bells and whistles for social sharing.

Early Google+ influencers remember the network's early glory days, and what led to its eventual demise. - Cake
My friend Chris MacAskill invited me over here to Cake to start a panel discussion about this hot subject! Now that Google+ is officially going as extinct as the dodo bird, it seems like a perfect time to have a discussion about it. I'll invite a few of my Google+ friends that want to participate in the panel.

BishopBlog: How to survive on Twitter – a simple rule to reduce stress
In recent weeks, I’ve seen tweets from a handful of people I follow saying they are thinking of giving up Twitter because it has become so negative. Of course they are entitled to do so, and they may find that it frees up time and mental space that could be better used for other things. The problem, though, is that I detect a sense of regret. And this is appropriate because Twitter, used judiciously, has great potential for good.
